    In our continued work to align TarValon.Net's policies and organization with our priorities and goals, we've updated the Code of Conduct. This statement clarifies expectations of all members within our community and is agreed-to by new members during registration. Thanks to the whole team that helped review and clarify this document!

    Are the terms I bolded going to be defined within the context of the site, or are we going to use the old obscenity test from Jacobellis v. Ohio?

    P.S. I'm not pretentious enough to wait for people to ask me what a somewhat-obscure reference is; Jacobellis v. Ohio is the one where Potter Stewart coined "I know it when I see it"
